Dry fitting of the tail assembly.

Horizontal stabilizer screws into the fuselage. Strengthen with some CA or Epoxy. Note that the elevator surfaces are joined with a rod and they design the fuselage to have a groove to fit the rod. Too bad, it was too low.

Rudder looks good, with holes in the back of the fuselage for you to insert the nylon hinge straight in. I used CA with kicker. Unfortunately, I was too confident of the hinge already glued in on arrival. It came loose in a bad landing when I maiden.

Tail looks great after dry fitting the parts. Minimal adjustment required. Just make sure the foam arrived proper in the parcel and not bent out of shape or anything.
